Reaching your World with Luis Palau has been airing on Lead Me To The Rock Radio for many years. We were saddened to hear of his passing, but he has gone onto glory and in the presence of the Lord. According to his family, he passed away quietly on March 11, at home at the age of 86. For more than 65 years, Luis Palau played an influential role in worldwide evangelism, taking the message of Jesus Christ to more than 80 nations. Luis said, “I have no regret in pouring out my years, from the time I was a boy, for the sake of the Good News. If I was given a thousand lifetimes, I would dedicate them all to the same calling.” In his early years, he worked with fellow evangelist, Billy Graham, before branching out on his own, with help from the Rev. Graham. In 2019, Luis published Palau: A Life on Fire, a deeply spiritual and intimate biography tracing his faith journey from humble beginnings on the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to sharing the Good News with millions around the world. Through all these efforts, Palau and his team have partnered with tens of thousands of churches to lead millions of individuals in decisions to follow Jesus Christ. In more recent years, he turned over much of the day-to-day operations of his ministry to three of his sons, while Luis was battling cancer. Kevin, Keith, and Andrew plan to continue their dad’s legacy, the Luis Palau Association. Please remember to pray for the Palau Family as they go through this time of mourning and remembrance.
“Jesus was able to conquer the grave and He is able to redeem your story.” – Luis Palau
